VIPASSANA RETREATS: develop a HAPPINESS not dependent of what we see, hear, feel, smell or taste. This happiness will never be boring or getting old.


There is no way to this happiness. The way showed by the Buddha is good and lovely in the beginning, good and lovely in the middle, and good and lovely in the end.


The most important external factor on this path is a good friendship, with someone who shows the way.

 

Since 2012 I do every year a 60-day Vipassana-retreat according to the Mahasi-method, developed by Mahasi Sayadaw (1904-1982). The first four times the retreat was under the guidance of his successor Sayadaw U Pandita (1921-2016). From 2017 on a collective of senior-students has taken over.

In this 38 minutes video the first 20 and the last 10 minutes give an impression of Sayadaw U Pandita's life. Between minutes 20 and 28 the last retreat (1, December 2018 – 31, January 2019) is being shown.

Anyone who did a 5- or 10-day retreat before, and who can derive enough motivation from his/her private or working life, I advise wholeheartedly to go for 60 days. Feel free to contact me if you would like to talk about it.
